Form & Verdict

Lightly raced and generally disappointing in recent years but his staying-on second at Ludlow (3m, good) in April was a pretty good effort, and he didn't run badly when remote second here (3m3f, good) last month; effective on good/good to soft ground; no surprise if he features.

Three novice hurdle wins in 2021 but missed 2022; stayed on well when second on chasing debut at Ludlow (3m, good; off this mark) in April but he was not running well when effectively brought down two out at Bangor (3m) in May; chance if reverting to the former effort.

Three novice hurdle wins in 2021; missed last year and has gradually found his form since returning; runner-up on chasing debut at Ludlow last month (off this mark), when staying on well; strong claims on that basis.

Form & Verdict

Consistent and versatile 8yo who last out only narrowly to Cilluirid here (2m3f, good) last month and was also second at Cartmel (2m5f, heavy) a fortnight ago; will be fine over today's trip and is likely to be right in the thick of things again.

J: Jonathan England

Difficult to win with (2-30), but can't be knocked for consistency having finished runner-up ten-times; has acquitted himself respectably on both previous visits to Sedgefield, recently when a keeping-on third to Deep Charm (3m3f, soft); good ground usually aids cause.

OR: 109

Form & Verdict

Came good over fences in small field at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) but effectively lost all chance when whipping round at start at Worcester in June and very nearly did the same there last month, albeit he did well to recover and chase home a very progressive rival (2m7f, good); major player if he behaves when the tape goes up here but comes with obvious risk; copes with good to soft but may not want genuine soft ground.

Largely consistent over fences this season, pipped at Taunton (2m7f) on last two outings; sometimes wears cheekpieces and had a visor on latest start; more to prove if the ground is worse than good to soft.

Runs this track well and has edged down to a workable mark but not seen since struggling in Lincolnshire National here on Boxing Day and has fitness to prove; tongue-tie removed; effective on good and soft ground.

Form & Verdict

Thorough stayer who is best known as a Cartmel specialist; significant rain will aid his cause here but he's away from his favourite track and his current mark demands a career-best performance.

Inconsistent 10yo who was pulled up at Bangor just 18 days ago, but that was a rare run over hurdles and he's shown some good chase form this season (including 3m5f win at Cartmel); not discounted now back over fences.
